The estate

The origins of the estate go back a long way. Vines have been cultivated on the slopes of what is now Château Pavie since the 4th century. Owned by Chantal and Gérard Perse since March 1998, Château Pavie, Premier Grand Cru Classé "A," boasts one of the finest terroirs in Saint-Émilion.

Château Pavie is renowned for the structure and elegance of its wines, which are the result of a harvest that is contained within yields that are lower than the average for the appellation, in order to reveal all the nuances of this exceptional terroir.

The vineyard

Château Pavie 2022 is a Saint-Émilion wine made from a single 42-hectare vineyard. Situated to the south-east of the Saint-Émilion hillside, the vineyard is spread over three levels, with vines that are on average 34 years old. The "plateau" (85 metres above sea level) is composed of clay-limestone soil above asteriated limestone and the "mid-slope" (55 metres above sea level) is composed of fine-textured brown clay-limestone soil. The "foot of the hill" is made up of sandy/sandy-clay and sandy-gravel soils.

Particular attention is paid to the vineyard, part of which has been the subject of a replanting plan that includes raising the trellising to increase the leaf area, specific pruning according to the age of the vines, thinning and leaf removal.

Winemaking and ageing

Hand-picked and sorted. Vinification in temperature-controlled wooden vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is ageing (75% new barrels, 25% one-wine barrels).

Blend

Château Pavie 2022 is a blend of Merlot (52%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (18%).

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very pretty density and dark-berry, bitter-chocolate and smoked-oak character. Some coffee, too. Full-bodied, firm and racy. Inner quote mark (3/2018)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Along with Lafite Rothschild, Ausone, and l’Eglise Clinet, Pavie is one of the wines of the vintage. An inky/purple color is accompanied by notes of creme de cassis, kirsch, graphite, and toast. A massive wine for the vintage, the 2007 Pavie is very full-bodied with extraordinary intensity, power, and richness. Its structure and tannin suggest 2-4 years of cellaring is required, and it should evolve for 25 years thereafter ,an unusually long aging curve for most 2007s. Yields were 25 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine is a classic blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated deep ruby, one of the darkest of all the 2007s. Liqueur-like but vibrant nose offers deep aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals, tobacco, soy sauce and bitter chocolate. Dense, sweet, slightly high-toned and powerful but with a penetrating quality and superb energy driven by an impression of mineral salts. Really wonderfully sweet and dense wine, with a thick, silky texture and superb mouth coverage. Very long and very young on the back end. Less extreme than some vintages of this wine; undeniably outsized for the vintage but fresh. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A solidly structured wine, filled with fig, bitter coffee, spice and wood over a firm structure of tannins. The freshness is quite intense, but the ripe fruit is vivid with layered acidity and new wood. This is a serious wine, for aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2010)
